Being Well Is About Reinvention - Not Health
Date:11/23/2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- How is the economy affecting people's wellness? According to a 2009 Survey by Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness on Wellness & the Economy, the economy is making us collectively more unwell, as our focus shifts from a healthy lifestyle of exercise and diet to one that is more inwardly focused on adapting to the new economic climate.

This means that as marketers, we have an important role to play in helping our constituents adapt to new realities in the marketplace."

The survey asked people to compare their wellness choices before and after the economic downturn. Over 500 people weighed in on SSW's survey on the economy and wellness, offering insight into everything from their moods to their eating and exercise regimes, from their media habits to their sex lives. The survey was conducted entirely through social media, reaching people in 9 countries and 31 states.

Before the economic downturn, consumers defined their state of wellness as being healthy, eating well and being physically fit. Today, wellness is about tryi
